Wagner: My wife changed my mind

Speaking just after the Red Sox' Thursday night win over the Kansas City Royals, reliever Billy Wagner admitted that he wasn't planning on coming to Boston on the morning of the trade deadline on Aug. 25. "I wasn't going to go to Boston," he said. After telling his agent that he was going to stay with the Mets, Wagner was swayed by his wife, Sarah, in a last-minute phone call that was supposed to be just to inform her of his decision. She convinced him to waive his no-trade clause and take the offer to join the Red Sox. To read the entire story, go to the Full Count Blog.
